    Good luck getting ticktes - most of them were supposed to go to local people last year when it was in Dundee but the town was full of irritiating West Coast indie scenesters apparently :chin:

    The dance party was shit hot though :yes:

    Ha, ok :p

    Bri-namite - Do you know if there is a limit on how many times you can apply? My flat mate applied about ten times last year and luckily, got a pair of tickets for Dundee despite living in Preston/Liverpool. I'm hoping it will be the same thing this year!

    I'm hoping that because I actually live in Preston, I will get a pair of tickets. There is so many students here though wanting a pair. I want to go! If I don't get a pair, I plan on sneaking in, somehow!!!!!! :chin:

    Can't remember if there's a limit, but get your family to apply for tickets too - anybody with a Preston postcode gets top priority for tickets so you'll be bound to get tickets for one of the days from somebody :yes:

    No guarantees though, last year the posties were stealing letters with tickets in them and handing them round in pubs. There were also a suspiciouly high amount of Weegies there too, so just make sure you get as many people to apply for you as you can.

    Aye. Its all well and good getting other people to apply but doesn't the person that applies have to be with you when you enter the park?

    I was told that you had to show ID to show that you were the person who was named on the ticket.

    If I win some, I hope no bloody postman steals them :grump:

    Oh and what are 'weegies'? :blush:

    I think people just blagged it last year. So long as you're not pretending to be your Uncle Derek then you'll be fine.

    Glaswegians, the place was apparently crawling with them last year, when Radio 1were going to make sure that "local people" got the majority of the tickets :rolleyes:

    Ha, ok :p

    HARSH! :razz: But you should go, I had an ace time last year. :yes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    You should check the line up for each day before you apply, cause it's unlikely you'll get tickets for both days.

    I used about six of my old addresses in Dundee to get tickets for 1983 for the Sunday (I think) last year, but t'no avail :no:

    Haha. It wasn't meant to come across in a horrible way!

    I am going to apply lots for tickets. I'm just gonna have to cross my fingers and hope I'm lucky!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I have subscribed to the mailing list, do you just wait now. What are the chances of anyone outside preston getting tickets?
    Also if I have subscribed my email address how many tickets can you get?
